Breaking News: Studio 60 returns May 24th at 10/9c

Well, this is a pleasant surprise. I was looking to see if perhaps Studio 60 might be replacing the finishing Raines after this week’s episode, and stumbled across something I was certainly not aware of.

According to NBC.com (And spread further by Zap2it), Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip will be taking over for ER on May 24th (That’s a Thursday) at 10pm EST. This is fantastic news for those of us who want to see how this season comes to a close. There’s still at least five episodes of the show remaining to air, and there’s still an off chance that it could be picked up for next season. However, I don’t expect this to happen.

You see, while it’s great that it’s coming back, that timeslot is going to be death. There’s no lead-in whatsoever, and while I’m glad to see it’s not being dead zoned on Fridays it’s still going to be a tough battle against the lead-outs from CSI (Shark) and Grey’s Anatomy (Maybe Men in Trees? Depends, really).

Either way, get ready to complain about pretentious writing and people who just can’t sleep together without bringing religion into it. And, if you’re me, kind of enjoy it all despite those aspects of it.
